how to stop raising damp?
bedroom is close to the ground, cant seem to stop mold and mildew any suggestions ?
get a good dehumidifier. Mold and mildew need water to servive. A good dehumidifier will suck all the water from the air and kill the mold and mildew.
you got to the right person nigthhag- and you are a friend on hubpages too.I am actually a civil engineer in the waterproofing business so can advice on this.
please check if it damp rising from the foundations and give me the palcement of the wall- meaning is it the outside wall on the side of which tehre is either a road or a patch of grass or something or is it the inside walls that have the damp too ( meaning walls which have rooms on both sides.)also give me the maerial of construction and thickness. with all this dat maybe i can give you some advice but then this rising damp is the most difficult thing totreat in our business.
